Google Searches

I find it amusing to look through my sitemeter stats to see how people came to my blog. Particularly the ones who stumbled on me by way of a Google search. For instance, I never would have guessed that my blog is the fifth result on a search for "Pancake Art" or "Back in Diapers." Mine was the entry right below the one about putting your bedwetting teen back in diapers. Shudder! Just when I was sure we had one down. . .

I'm the first Related Blog result if you do a blog search for "Keeping Up With the Joneses." I actually find that amazing, since there are about a million people with that name for their blog. I guess lots of us Joneses are not that original.

I rank #7 on a search for "My+blog+exposed+church." Makes me curious to know what that person was actually looking for.

I've also gotten lots of traffic from people looking for pictures of the Magnum at Cedar Point. Curious, because I don't have the picture in the post, I only linked to it.

What really amazes me, though, is the fact that someone came to my site by way of a Google search for "Harvest Bible Chapel." I'm about 590th on that search result. Who in the world has the patience to make it to the 590th result?! Apparently someone in Jacksonville, FL does. I occasionally have made it to the third or fourth page, but this guy was still going strong on page 59!

Even more impressive was the time someone from Germany came via a search for "pull up." I'm well into the thousands on that search. I say, if you haven't found what you're looking for well before that point, perhaps you should refine your search.

Not that I mind the traffic.

At least they are not coming to find out how to make a castle cake. I get at least 5 hits a day for castle cakes thanks to your husband who is sabatoging my blog.

Julie, I'm sure they come for the castle cakes and stay for the great writing.

Lacy, it's probably a good thing that you didn't have pictures!
